Review of The silent language, by Edward T. Hall

Order a subscription today. Review by: S. Posinsky The Silent Language is the communication among peoples of different cultures or subcultures. As a former officer of the State Department, and an anthropological specialist in the training of Americans for foreign service or business, Hall is eminently qualified to know how disastrous this wordless communication can be.

Beginning with the introductory paragraphs, however, this book moves in several directions at once and on different levels of abstraction. It is partly a theory of culture which derives from biology, a theory of communication, linguistics, and the psychiatry of Harry Stack Sullivan.

It is also a jet-age treatise on etiquette, and an oblique discussion of the less than phenomenal success of the foreign-aid program.

As might be expected, the fault has no connection with officialdom, or with complex impersonal forces, but with the chauvinistic American citizen who is greatly ethnocentric, behaves badly when abroad, etc. One wonders if the anthropologists' interest in these matters is dictated by a sense of national or personal mission, or merely by the desire to stave off technological unemployment.

At any rate, problems of global complexity are here discussed with a glibness that would be inappropriate in a kindergarten teacher.

Writing for the layman and the scientist alike, Hall feels 'very strongly that we must recognize and understand the cultural process'.WorldCat is the world's largest library catalog, helping you find library materials online.
